1969 Volkswagen Type 3

That's right the 60 has a new home in Orlando. Chris and his father drove up today and took my sweet '60 south.

I must admit, I'm not as happy as I thought I would be once I sold her. Sad She is going to a good home, but I will miss her.

So now I move on and it is time for a type 4 for the Thing. Look out world, I'm getting a BIG block. Very Happy

WOW!! John is about to have a 481!

I dug the engine out this week while cleaning up for the Excellence article...

She is ready to be cleaned up and installed :-)

I'll even deliver it!

OK.. It'll be on the dyno and ready for pick up or delivery the end of this week :-)

I'd expect it to make around 100HP, we'll see...

BTW- You'll need a dizzy too... I'll use a test unit for the dyno session.

That would be good. I have several distributors around, but no 050s.
